Apple View Lodge is well located within central Somerset for Glastonbury, Wells etc and I would recommend it as a base to stay for a couple of nights. We received a very warm welcome from the owner Judith with a cup of tea and homemade cake - just what's needed after a long drive. We were given a choice of rooms - one on the ground floor which is kitted out for disabled visitors and one upstairs which was lovely but rather compact. My husband is a very tall chap so we plumped for the downstairs room which was considerable large and also a family room with an extra single bed in it.
Plus points - Judith was incredibly helpful and friendly and breakfast were great - a lot of the produce fresh from the farm. The decor was lovely and the B&B guests have their own annex of the house with a comfortable living room/breakfast room in which to relax with TV and wifi.
Negative points - maybe our room wasn't used too much, but there was unsightly damp mould patches in the bathroom and a creeping chill that invaded the bedroom from the cold damp bathroom - even with the heating on at night and it was actually quite warm weather! Now the whole point of staying anywhere is to get a good nights sleep and we both found the bed uncomfortable - the mattress wasn't great, but passable. What we were really surprised about is that they used blankets and sheets - they were heavy, uncomfortable and not very warm - we felt pinned to the bed by the sheer weight. I was cold in the night and although there was yet another spare blanket in the wardrobe - I couldn't put it on as it would just be a dead weight ontop of me. My suggestion - update to a duvet and purchase a mattress topper!!!! Also my husband booked the B&B, but he didn't look closely enough at the room pictures, so being very tall he couldn't lie straight in the bed as his feet would hit the metal bedstead frame at the end of the bed.
Regardless of the bed situation, we did have a lovely stay. Maybe one of the other rooms would be more comfortable?
